Everything You Need To Know About Tonights Community Season 5, Episode 3

This episode is titled "Basic Intergluteal Numismatics."

Intergluteal meaning "between buttocks" and numismatics meaning "currency, primarily coins". And, uh, basic meaning..."basic". So basically (see what I did there?) - Coins Between Butt-Cheeks.

Article The Dorklyst: 11 Terrible Videogames Worth More Than Your First Car

By Hudson Hongo / August 9, 2013
The Dorklyst: 11 Terrible Videogames Worth More Than Your First Car

Some rare games are lost classics, superb artistic and technical achievements that, for one reason or another, flopped in the marketplace faster than you can say "8-bit Moby-Dick." But for every Ōkami and EarthBound, there are 100 other failed releases like Cheetahmen II, gag-inducing stinkers that even their creators would prefer we just forget about. Unfortunately for them, the collector's market doesn't give a Shaq-Fu what they think, as evidenced by these 11 awful, rare, and awfully rare games that nevertheless sell for more than your high school beater.

11. Link: The Faces of Evil

Auction Price: $590Car It's Worth More Than: 1989 Geo Metro

Criticize Skyward Sword all you want, at least it never triggered any acid flashbacks. The same can't be said for Link: The Faces of Evil, one of three notoriously weird Zelda titles released on the Philips CD-i. Seemingly based on one of Shigeru Miyamoto's fever dreams, The Faces of Evil is famous for the bizarre full-motion cutscenes that make it closer to a David Lynch movie than a proper Zelda outing. But despite looking and sounding like a prescription cough syrup bender, a new copy of this game can sell for nearly $600, making it a better investment than that Geo Metro your buddy swears just needs a new transmission.

Article Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation IV Pokemon

By Andrew Bridgman / November 20, 2013

Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation IV Pokemon

The Generation 4 results are in - and after 2.2 million votes, we have the top 15 Sinnoh-kemon. While the Bidoof enthusiasts made their voices heard in the comments, the votes were not enough to put everyone's favorite badger-rodent-thing over the top. So here are the (reminder: according to voters, not ME, Bidoof-ophiles) greatest 15 Pokemon from Generation 4.

 

15. Electivire

  Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation IV Pokemon

Gen 4 was a gift to many sadly-unevolving Pokemon from Gen 1 - Magmar grew into Magmortar, Tangela grew into Tangrowth, and Electabuzz grew into Electivire. Not to get too personal, but as someone who was a dumb kid in the days before Bulbapedia, I foolishly trained an Electabuzz to Level 100, convinced it would evolve eventually. It didn't. But knowing now that it would have evolved into Electivire makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, even if it does look like an electric gorilla with two dongs coming out of its shoulders.

Article Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation V Pokemon

By Andrew Bridgman / November 27, 2013

Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation V Pokemon

After 1.7 million votes, the results are in for the best Pokemon from Black & White. And the top 15 from Generation 5 may surprise you - not all the starters made it, not al the Legendaries made it, and having blades on your face proved to be very popular across the board. To help illustrate why each of the Pokemon that made the cut were so popular, we've included a comment from the voting or an email we received. 

So here are the (reminder: according to voters, not ME) greatest 15 Pokemon from Generation 5.

 

15. Krookodile

  Toplist Results: The 15 Greatest Generation V Pokemon

Krookodile or one of its evolutionary relatives better stay in thetop 15. The awesomeness of that pokemon kept my faith in Gamefreaks designers especially after seeing some of the most retarded looking pokemon like scafty and its evolution line (Daniel Letourneau)

Krookodile has it all - a badass name that shows it lives on the wrong side of the law (Pokelaw?), a type combo that leaves it totally immune to both Electric and Psychic-type attacks, and an intimidating appearance. It's kinda surprising it turns out so evil-looking, given it starts out as the adorable Sandile. Perhaps it represents the innocence America lost as a country in the Watergate scandal. As Richard Nixon said, "I am not a Krook[odile]."

Article Pwn Up: When You Wish Upon a Card

Pwn Up: When You Wish Upon a Card

 

In 9th grade I attended a Christian school and my friends and I were really into playing with Yu-gi-oh! cards as a retro throwback. We'd bust out our old decks at school and play whenever we could. This lasted until the principle decided that Yu-gi-oh! wasn't appropriate for a Christian school and so he banned it. During our senior year, in one last act of "rebellion" we decided to bring the Yu-gi-oh! cards with us to our senior trip to Disney World. Turns out it was a great way to pass the time in the hotel. Soon, more and more of our classmates began dueling with us during the mornings, while the girls kept complaining we made them late to Disney. One of the mornings we had such intense duels that it caused us to leave WAY later than we should have. We were about to leave when all of a sudden a giant thunderstorm just lets loose above our heads. If we had left when we were supposed to, we would have been caught in the storm at Disney World. All of the guys celebrated the fact that us playing Yu-gi-oh! saved the day, and we spent the whole day reminding the girls that you should ALWAYS believe in the heart of the cards.
